. paul street is where it is located. the third issue, the most problem for us, is that when the permit tracking system becomes operational in 24 months, it is going to be posted outside the vendor, which means that we will not need these servers. however, until that standpoint, we will need servers here for the permit tracking system. the worst thing that could happen is we could have a situation where we cannot issue permits and how to keep everything by hand. we're working with the department of technology this afternoon to try to figure out how to replace those permit tracking servers in a fashion that when we go live with the hosting, we have not wasted resources. that is going to be our biggest trick with that. the other is the cash management systems. the vendor has been meeting with us on the requirements. when we get to the new permit tracking system, those will be integrated, but we're going forward now for a new system. we're hoping that will help us process payments faster. people will have more control, more accountability, of how much the revenues that they have actually t

providers they should be locating. third, let us discuss the process. the planning commission and the department had a lot of guidance on revoking -- reviewing wireless facilities. in 1996, the board of supervisors passed a resolution on where we should locate these facilities. it emphasized that these should be the city's top preference for these facilities. the board said specifically these are most compatible and is likely to be visually destructive. the board resolution did seek clarification on some of the lower preference sites. in response, the planning commission revised the guidelines in august 1996, and updated them again in 2003. the guidelines contained not only preferences and locations, but mandate community outreach meetings be held for installations that need review an alternative analysis studies should be done one preferred sites cannot be used. that is not the case here. it also requires a plan which must be updated annually. that is the process that led to this being declared the most preferred site. other procedural reviews include aesthetic review by plan
